Forgotten Lyrics

When I was a child, we sang songs in school, as children often do. As a child, I always had trouble understanding the lyrics to "God Bless America." I sang: "From the mountains, to the praries, 'cross the oceans white with snow," and could never understand why the oceans were white with snow.

I know I'm not the only one who's made mistakes like this. Take a moment to share your embarrassing song moment.

There are so many to choose from: "Stop dragging my car around" instead of "Stop dragging my heart around." "Born dead in Ohio" instead of "Four dead in Ohio." I think I'll stop now.

beach boys, "god only knows"

"gobbly nose, what i'd be without you..." how touching he was singing to his pet turkey on the album pet sounds.

"round young virgin" instead of "(a)round yon virgin"

Pop music is so full of misheard lyrics. I swore the song was about a "Secret Asian Man"

And let's not forget "We're shakin' a baby now, twist and shout"
